STUDY DESIGN An assessment of magnetic resonance imaging techniques of the iliolumbar ligament. OBJECTIVES To identify a technique to better image the iliolumbar ligament. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The iliolumbar ligament plays an important role in providing lumbosacral stability. Two-dimensional magnetic resonance imaging of the lumbar spine only provides a fragmented representation of the ligament. METHODS A two-part study was performed. In the first part, three cadaver pelvi were… CONTINUE READING
